    I haven't read it, but from what I have read about it on here it is not something that would suit our parenting style for our babies.

    I read SOS. I found it interesting as a first time mum.

    I find it interesting that people can comment on it without actually reading the book.

    I had a friend who swore by it with her first but her second just didn't want to fall into that routine.

    I found the sections on bedtime routine really helpful. Plus introducing solids helpful too.
    I don't like the idea personally of crying it out. . but I don't think she particularly advocates this. I didn't like the amount of clothes she suggests bub wears to bed.
    I did refer to it several times in relation to average sleep and routines when my dd was about 4 months old.

    I think with most things you put your sensible common sense hat on and take out what would work for you and your family or baby.

    It wasn't the only book I read on the subject.

    Oh I didn't mean you. Our anyone in particular to be honest.
    And I'm not defending the book. I know lots of people it worked for but lots it didn't too.

    I just find it interesting there are people who say 'I haven't read it but....'

    What's funny is that I never even knew it was controversial til I joined BH... and read some threads. Before. .. my friends all raved about her!!

    I have a crap sleeper.

    I have read it all and tried parts of it for a brief moment in time when I was desperate and when I thought that this was what was supposed to work and that it was normal for babies to slip easily into a routine.

    It is not something I would ever bother with for a 2nd child. As others have said it just goes against all my instincts. I also think that babies have so many leaps and regressions, it's something, that for a crap sleeper like mine, will never work. I think it usually works for people that probably have ok to good sleeping babies anyway.

    To the pp who asked about sleep regressions - my DS has hit every single one and SOS seems pointless bothering with when you're dealing with sleep regressions. It's like pushing $hit uphill.

    That was me with my first. OMG I read everything and tried everything (against my instincts and better judgement but desperation makes one do things they otherwise wouldn't) to try and get that damn child to sleep.

    Pushing sh!t uphill indeed.

    I've read it from cover to cover. At times I've even been desperate enough to consider trying it, but I know that I would break before my son did. All I will say is, as a new mum, until I read it, I didn't really think of myself as having a parenting 'style' or philosophy. It just felt wrong to me (for *ME*) as soon as I read it, and this was my reason for choosing not to use it. However, I had a year's maternity leave and no other children, so it didn't bother me too much if I was tired and had to cope, or had to put napping during the day as my main priority above everyone else, iykwim? I understand others don't have that luxury.

    OP, you will find people on here who rave about it and who rant against it. Ultimately, I would suggest reading it and deciding for yourself. You may want to take little aspects away from it. Just please remember it is not based on any kind of scientific research whatsoever :-)

    Although even the people I'm thinking of who are big fans might suggest that your little one is too young to start on it right yet? Unless he's older than I'm thinking...

    Sorry to derail, just curious reading this thread and if anyone feels like giving me a quick rundown of the main things in it that people find so controversial?
    I'm guessing it's not like controlled crying as with that method you continually go in and soothe your baby; is Save Our Sleep the method where you leave the baby to cry no matter what? Do you go in to them if they wake at any time during the night? What if they wake up crying 5 times a night? Are they left alone all night? At what age?

    Sounds dreadful and inhumane if so.

    I don't like it, it doesn't sit right with me. My sil uses it to the extreme, yes her kids sleep but they have missed out on all those beautiful moments you have with a baby where they cozy up and fall asleep on you. She follows it to the point of not feeding my 4 day old nephew when he was rooting because 'it wasn't feed time yet' and putting ear plugs in so they can go to sleep.

    My dd is a terrible sleeper, absolutely shocking, she's slept through 4 times in 16 months and we spent 14 days at tresillian. But she just needs some security and that's ok.

    Horses for courses I guess but it doesn't rock my boat. And the information. She gives on blanket layers is blatantly dangerous.
